An Educational Milestone For Our Family

I guess you could say that our family has reached somewhat of an educational milestone...for the first time in 14 years, we will not have a child in attendance at our local elementary school.

We have four kids who are now ages 11, 14, 16, and 19. We have always lived in the same school district, with our kids attending the same elementary, middle, and high schools. For the last 14 years, we have had one (or more) children attending our local elementary school. That's 14 years in a row that we've been at that same elementary school!

Now, our youngest will be moving onto middle school this fall. It's a strange feeling. I feel like I knew that place like the back of my hand. We had the pleasure of getting to know so many of the teachers and staff and feel lucky to be part of such a wonderful school community. But, it's also nice to be moving on. Not only is our youngest moving to middle school, but our second youngest will be starting high school. I think it's going to be an exciting year!

For those of you who have school age kids, what grades will they be entering this fall? Are any of your kids making a big transition this year?

Hello Kari,
Our youngest daughter is moving on to Middle School as well, but she will remain on the same campus where is attended grade school. We are so lucky to have a wonderful Montessori school so close by our home. I am enjoying my summer but it seems to be flying by so quickly. How about you?
